Hlaudi Motsoeneng adamant SABC officials knew he did not have matric

Former SABC chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng has told the state capture commission that he feels offended when claims are made that he lied about his qualifications.

Motsoeneng told the commission that various SABC officials who recruited him knew that he wasn't qualified.

Clement Manyathela speaks to Eyewitness News reporter Nthakoana Ngatane about Motsoeneng's testimony.

He started his testimony by addressing the very topical issue of his matric certificate, saying that it is very hurtful and even offending that the Public Protector and the media have painted him as having said that he has a matric.
